How do you catch a criminal who has stolen a time travel machine so he can rewrite history as it happens?

How do you catch a criminal who has stolen a time travel machine so he can rewrite history as it happens? Well, you jump in your own time machine and travel back through time yourself to catch him in the act, of course!

That’s the slightly far-fetched plot of this new US drama, which stars ER’s Goran Visnjic as the time-travelling baddie.

His target in this first episode is the 1937 Hindenburg disaster – the German airship that exploded killing 36 people – and a mismatched trio of goodies is hot on his heels to try and stop his meddling.

A little ridiculous, but fun and compelling nonetheless.
